One of the main missions of the MedPAN network is to foster experience exchange between Mediterranean MPA managers
To this effect, the network organises gatherings for managers at a regional level, better known under the name of experience exchange workshops.
These workshops promote the exchange of information, expertise and experiences. The interest in organising these moments of exchange is to take stock on a given subject, the situation in the Mediterranean, and provide an opportunity for various project leaders to meet, to appreciate the diversity of existing projects, to be inspired and to build long-term approaches.
Since its inception in 2009, the MedPAN organisation has organised in partnership with numerous partners, three regional experience exchange workshops for the MedPAN network.
The 4th workshop will take place in November 2014 in Albania and will be centered on "Monitoring for Mediterranean MPAs"
These workshops complement the workshops organised for the MedPAN network in the framework of the INTERREG IIIC MedPAN project that were held between 2004 and 2007
